Interpolating Cubic BSpline

Description

The Interpolating Cubic BSpline entity is a curve based on a Cublic BSpline which interpolates its definition points. Three options for generating the curve are available in the attribute panel which change the type of continuity, knot spacing and control point arrangement. The end conditions near the end points can also be controlled from the attributes panel.

Creation
